Robert Hays and Pam Dawber in The Girl, The Gold Watch, & Everything (1982)

Just watched this last week on YouTube. Silly early 80s movie. I remembered it as being better than it was, but Pam Dawber is always fun. One thing, I have to question the morality of something Hays’ character does when he first meets Dawber’s character. Sketchy, at best.

Moonlighting was a series starring Cybill Shepherd and Bruce Willis as private detectives. The series, which aired on ABC from 1985 to 1989, was created by Glenn Gordon Caron, one of the producers of the similar Remington Steele, when he was approached by ABC executive Lewis H. Erlicht. Erlicht liked the work Caron had done on Taxi and Remington Steele and wanted a detective show featuring a major star in a leading role who would appeal to an upscale audience. Caron wanted to do a romance, to which Erlicht replied “I don’t care what it is, as long as it’s a detective show.”
The tone of the series was left up to the production staff, resulting in Moonlighting becoming one of the first successful TV “dramedies"— dramatic-comedy, a style of television and movies in which there is an equal or nearly equal balance of humor and serious content. The show made use of fast-paced, overlapping dialogue between the two leads, harkening back to classic screwball comedy films such as those of director Howard Hawks. These innovative qualities resulted in its being nominated, for the first time in the 50-year history of the Directors Guild of America, for both Best Drama and Best Comedy in the same year (both in 1985 and 1986. (Wikipedia)

I loved this show. Wish it hadn’t ended so abruptly and messed up.
